Another week, another major Hollywood film delay.

Paramount has pushed the release of A Quiet Place Part II further into 2021, as the pandemic continues to disrupt the global film industry.

The film, starring Emily Blunt, was initially set to be released on September 4, 2020, but was pushed back to April 23, 2021. However, it has now been delayed further, with a slated release date of Friday, September 17.

The film is written and directed by Blunt's husband John Krasinski, who also starred alongside her in the 2018 original film. A Quiet Place II will feature new additions to the cast, including Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou.

The delay comes days after it was announced that the latest in the James Bond franchise, No Time to Die – which is expected to be Daniel Craig's last outing as 007 – has been delayed until Friday, October 8.

The film was due to be one of 2020's most high-profile releases, but it suffered a number of setbacks and delays because of the pandemic, and it wasn't the only one. Dune, The Batman and Black Widow have all been pushed back from their original release dates.

Bios, a Miguel Sapochnik-directed sci-fi film starring Tom Hanks, has also had its release date moved. The movie, in which the Big actor plays the last man on Earth, has been pushed from Friday, April 16 to Friday, August 13.

Tom Holland's Uncharted, the cinematic adaptation of the popular video game, has also been postponed from its July release date to February 11, 2022.
